*Unfortunately since the change of regulations in September 2013, the school is unable to authorise absences in term-time apart from in very exceptional circumstances. If you need to request time off for your child then please inform the school in writing as soon as possible in advance of the requested dates.Cumbria County Council can choose to issue a fixed penalty notice if any unauthorised absences are accompanied by poor attendance and poor academic achievement.
